You will find out that every goalie lets in a soft one every now and then.

Rangers fans kill Henrik Lundqvist for it. He's a top 5 goalie.

Bad ice, bad goal, Borbrovsky should have had the save, but that was far from the reason why they lost the game. This team has a ton of skill but seem to lack the willingness as a group to play physical. The only guys who I counted actually finished a hit were: Shelley, Carcillo, Powe, Giroux, and Briere. And Meszaros looked like the guy who I was afraid we were getting from TB.

I'm getting worried about Bob. He does not look like the superstar who started the season. I know teams now have him mapped out and want to shot high on him. (an issue which I don't see him adjusting to that quickly. ) but I now see him letting in more and more "soft goals"

He's a freaking rookie playing more games than he ever has before.
This is why the hype at the beginning annoyed me. You knew once he started to cool down people would be quickly change their opinion.

Yes... the rest of the league has Bobrovsky's number so let's send him down.

Or, I dunno, let's look at Bobrovsky's last 12 games and try to remain sane. Or not.

(OTL) Feb 22 '11 PHX @ PHI - .897
(L) Feb 18 '11 PHI @ CAR - .897
(W) Feb 16 '11 PHI @ FLA - .943
(L) Feb 13 '11 LAK @ PHI - .960
(W) Feb 03 '11 NSH @ PHI - .929
(L) Feb 01 '11 PHI @ TBL - .500
(W) Jan 25 '11 MTL @ PHI - .935
(W) Jan 23 '11 PHI @ CHI - .968
(W) Jan 20 '11 OTT @ PHI - .926
(W) Jan 18 '11 WSH @ PHI - .920
(W) Jan 14 '11 PHI @ ATL - .931
(W) Jan 11 '11 PHI @ BUF - .950

He obviously should have been sent down on February 1st. Better yet, ship his ass off to Siberia.

I guess it's easy to forget how many times he completely bailed us out against the Canes? We've been turnover machines the last couple games he's played, and he's stepped up most of the time. I'd sooner put him at fault for the last goal than the 2nd goal. I didn't see the first one so I cant comment on that.

Bob is a goalie that I think can steal us games in the playoffs, and provided our defense steps up when it matters, I think Bob can handle the load. Im equally comfortable with either Bob or Boosh, although I think Bob has more potential to play out of his mind good.

I went with the last choice, but it should probably have been somewhere between the first and the second. That is, it's not a routine save, but still if you want your goalie to save the game for you that is a save that needs to be made.

Meh.

It was an unfortunate bounce. He had the correct save selection for the initial shot (though he maybe could have had the blocker down a little tighter).

Worse bounces have been let in by better/more experienced goalies. Not much you can do there....

We've gotten in a stretch where we see a softie every single game though. I'm finding it harder to blame it on the goalies themselves though. They have had to work way too hard with some stupid breakdowns in front of them.

Also, I really wish Laviolette would choose one guy and let him have the net until he has a bad game, and then do the same with the other guy. I know he wants to keep it fresh for both guys by alternating 1 game, but really it's just keeping them both cold. Need to let one guy get in a rhythm, and maybe these sloppy ones will decrease in frequency.

Bob's Fault?

My wife has been watching our son play goal for over 12 years. Every time he gets scored on she says "Was that his fault? Could he have saved that?" and almost every time I answer "No and yes". Well, almost every time because he does give up a stinker every once in a while. It's a goalie's lot in life to be second guessed.

If he was a little more upright could have just kicked it to the corner. But he's all about lateral movement. it is what it is.

It was not Bobrovsky's fault and not a shot you can expect a goalie to stop.

He played it exactly how he should have. It was a soft wrist shot on net, along the ice. It showed no signs of bouncing or anything abnormal of the sort. The proper play is to use your stick to direct the puck into the corner and back your stick up with your pad. Bobrovsky did just this.

When attempting to direct a puck along the ice, a large gap is created between the top of the pad and blocker. There is no way to properly direct a puck with your stick and not leave this gap.

The bounce the puck took was unexpected and leaved no time for Bobrovsky to react. It took a wild bounce and beat him in the gap. A breakaway is easier to stop then an unexpected bounce like that.

He's referring to his poor puckhandling skills, not the bounce. He often puts the defensemen in very bad situations and usually he gives it away behind the net for an "almost goal" at least once every game.

Something he is learning.

But it is scary to watch him go back there.

It wouldn't be so bad if I knew that every time I did something right everyone would cheer and chant my name. It would be even better if I was right over 90% of the time.
